Keisha Jackson was born in Brooklyn, New York and is the daughter of Millie Jackson. Having grown up in a family rich with music history, Keisha's childhood was immersed in music. People like the Isleys and O'Jays would visit her house, and she worked as a background singer for her mom when she was fifteen.
Keisha Jackson went to college for 2 and a half years before moving to Atlanta where she tried to pursue a music career. She formed a girl group with her friend called Obsession and played the clubs around the city.
Keisha then got an opportunity to put out some albums, and in 1989, released her self-titled debut. The album scored a minor hit with its single, "Hot Little Love Affair" which reached #39 on the charts. In 1991, Keisha released a second effort, titled Keisha, which had the single "Mature Love." The track failed to make a big impression and peaked at #80 on the R&B charts.
In the time after, Keisha began working with LaFace Records as a background vocalist. She worked on tracks with Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. She became involved with a Warner Brothers plan to make a group called Black Coffy and was signed to the project. However, the group was dropped before ever making any real recordings.
Today, Keisha continues to record and perform, and has started her own agency titled One Voice Entertainment.
